I want to add tetras to my tank. I've only had neons before, so I'm kind of bored with them. I also understand that they are most susceptible to disease.

Any thoughts on alternative tetras that may be more healthy?

TIA

I don't know about healthy that depends on the store you buy them from, but I can tell you a couple different types.

Well, it does depend a little bit on the species, such as the neons with the disease outbreak.
I personally love Congo Tetras, Serpae Tetras, or Glowlight Tetras.
They are all super active fish and will fill in a tank nicely with some dense plants.

I know they aren't a tetra, but Cherry Barbs go top to nothing in my opinion, they are EXTREMELY active

If you are looking for tetras go to liveaquaria.com and search up "tetra" they have a lot of different species and their care requirements (though I would look up the species separately because they seem to have a lot of wrong info)

There are thousands of tetras.
Don't know which visit the gym
Think the not overbred ones will be the healthiest.
